The final session of the Prairie Community Library Summer Reading Program was on Thursday Aug 5th.  Lydia Deiss was our guest reader.  The kids enjoyed the stories she read to us.  We learned how to use food coloring to color sand and make sand art.  All the kids received prizes, but the grand prizes of mesh tote bags were awarded to the kids who turned in the most reading time.  Thanks to all of our guest readers and teen and parent volunteers who helped make this program so enjoyable for the kids.  Photo provided by Aleta Coppernoll.
